Nike has lost Berdych
 
See pics

** Saw this has already been discussed, but here is a new thread for discussion about Tomas

It has been discussed. There is another thread. And most seem to think Nike either didn't make him an offer or made one low enough that they knew someone else would outbid and aren't too upsets.

But thanks for the pics - I hadn't seen any closeups.

Yup and Milos is with some crappy company that I have never heard of.

^Hahah, yeah, I'm guessing Le Bawss was making fun of New Balance, haha. French dude avec sense of humor who resents Lacoste's decision, peut etre.

The New Balance stuff actually looks really good on Milos. The Lacoste gear he was sporting made him look like a kid that outgrew his clothes, same goes for Isner.

Didn't Lacoste sponser Isner & Roddick? Correct me if wrong but Leconte and Arthur Ashe also wore Lacoste clothes.

ahhahaa, you're probably saying that because of the shirt that he is wearing! New Balance is a good brand, their shoes are excellent, but their designs and color combos are a little weird.

Lacoste would be a very good match.
Much better than H&M.

New Balance is more of a running company but they do have some tennis products. Maybe they are expanding. I've used them exclusively for the last 17 years - because they have so many models in 4E widths.

On the Berdych pictures - do they have the Graphene Instinct PJ?

Yes. and let us not forzhay Guy Forget et Thierry Tulasne.

Arthur Ashe probably did wear some Lacoste in the late 60s, but generally wore Fred Perry before having his own brand with the red and blue A with the little spot in the middle.
Then, as an elder statesman, he wore Le Coq Sportif as did one of his young friends, Yannick Noah.

Back to Berdych, I know he was known to wear that Nike hat with the elastic parts on the side. WOnder if he'll get paintjobs of that hat when/if he switches brands.
I can see one of the Storied Italian brands picking him up. Maybe Diadora? Tacchini? Ellesse? FILA?
Or adidas, which would promulgate some of the Safin comparisons.
It'd be cool to see him wearing Topper or Auztralian...or ALBA or TTK, which seem to be popular in his part of the world (central Europe).

Ashe also wore Adidas.

Ask runners and they'll tell you, NB's running shoes blow Nike's away.

I definitely wouldn't say that.

If you follow running, you'd know Nike's are crap.

Then RUN DMC made it even more famous.

Ashe. The last of the greats. None left who are like him. Well, maybe Roger.

I swear by nike air max's (used to be called 360)
I run approx 750 miles a year and they have
helped my knees tremendously (meniscus)

New balance are fine shoes, esp. if you have a superwide foot (I am a D, so it isn't that big a deal), as are Asics (I wear gel res for tennis) bu they do not "blow nike away" imho.

Frankly, compared to the shoes of 30/40 years ago, they are almost all 100% improved. But of course they (just like racquets and golf clubs) come up with made up words to describe non improvements in technology so we will all run out and buy the latest model....

movdqa 01-13-2013 04:23 AM

One other aspect of New Balance is that about half of their models sold in the US are made in the US. I used to buy mine from the Brighton factory outlet which was right next to the factory.

heninfan99 01-13-2013 04:30 AM

If he is with Lacoste now good for him. I dig their clothes.
